Emily is a single mama of two girls ages 6 and 8.
After going through a divorce that turned into a complete overhaul and redesign of her life, she found herself on an awareness journey asking many questions that ultimately brought her to Rachel and MSU.
She is currently working as an assistant/administrative contractor and owns a small trucking company in Central Oregon with her partner.
I had humble beginnings growing up in a dysfunctional household. My parents were not able to take care of me so I was placed into the foster care system at age 5.
Luckily, I had a very strong “soul compass” as a young child and spoke out to the social workers whenever I was unhappy with my current foster home. This led to me moving between 7 different foster homes from age 5 - 8 until I found my forever family who adopted me at age 12.
Because I had difficulties in school, I was placed on ADD medication at age 8 and remained on it until my early thirties. I met a theta healer around that time who helped me discover my spiritual path and suggested that I might not need the ADD meds anymore.
After stopping my meds cold turkey, I went through a dark night of the soul and didn’t know who I was anymore. Since I was having suicidal thoughts, I started to look for spiritual retreat centers where I could find some answers. I signed up for an Ayahuasca retreat in Costa Rica and experienced a major heart opening there.
This led me to explore different spiritual modalities that eventually led me to MSU. I’m here to grow my inner wisdom and learn to heal the wounds within.
Alexia was born and raised in Queens, New York to immigrant parents who provided a strong foundation of working hard and respect. She grew up in a bilingual Spanish household and never felt like she fit in as she was often told she did not look or sound like a latina.
With the strong foundation provided by her parents, Alexia graduated with a Master’s Degree in Social Work. She currently works as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker within the Department of Education and part-time in a foster care agency.
Alexia’s background is working with students that have special needs and assisting families to navigate the complex system of special education. Additionally, Alexia works with mothers within the system of foster care that have been a victim of domestic violence and supporting them in navigating complex social and emotional issues. Alexia has also worked in private practice providing therapy to help adults, couples, children and adolescents in coping with trauma and build resilience. Her bilingual skills have helped her work with latino families in a therapeutic setting.
Through this work Alexia has recognized the need for more to help support her clients in empowering them to reach their highest potential. Recognizing that traditional talk therapy isn’t always enough.
In her own journey of healing, Alexia has attempted to apply different modalities to support herself and her clients. During a particularly difficult time in Alexia’s life that involved a devastating and prolonged break-up is when she realized how much of her own patterns/programs came up in different areas in her life. It was almost as if she was living in her subconscious for all these years and just following the path that her parents had walked already. In working towards finding a different path, Alexia heard Rachel Fiori speak on two different podcasts and became intrigued by the work. In leaning into understanding herself more, Alexia recognized that the traditional methods of healing were not going to be enough to be able to break the patterns and programs from the past.
As a woman who has never fit into societal norms, I’ve always been one to unconsciously attract the broken, and repel the ones resistant to change.
A black sheep of the family, the “strange” one in school, the “crazy one” in relationships, and the “flighty” friend; I’ve never fit in.
It wasn’t until Source showed me in 2019 in losing my grandfather, a TRUE man of God, that I’m meant to be different for a reason, and it’s my greatest gift.
My daughter was born three weeks later, and upon her arrival she has mirrored back to me who I was, before the conditioning, before the pain, before the programming.
In saving that little girl, I’m in turn saving myself.
In choosing love for myself and my children, I left a marriage, a steady paycheck, and a “perfect family” dynamic to save my little people from the same cycles I’ve run the last 25 years.
To be comfortable, is to be complacent, and that is unacceptable for me and mine.
My children deserve the world, and who better to show them than the one who learned the hard way?
I chose myself to be their biggest influence in self love, acceptance, and honoring their individual paths based on what their hearts say, no matter how difficult, or how “strange” it is to others.
I’m absolutely overjoyed to help bring out the same pieces in you that you have lost, because you deserve ultimate happiness, in spite of what society says that happiness is.
